Nottingham Forest vs Watford
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 2 December 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: City Ground (Nottingham).

Forest continues to disappoint with their last encounter turning into the third consecutive loss in their championship schedule this term. Their previous encounter was at home, and Swansea returned with all three points from a 0-1 scoreline fixture.

Watford extends their unbeaten run to the fifth game in the campaign with their last match. The Hornets have lost only two of their 14 league appearances so far this season. They will visit on the back of a 4-1 win at home against the likes of Preston in the championship.

Nottingham Forest vs Watford Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The visitor has been unbeaten in the recent three meetings.
  • The Hornets have recorded four of the last five overall wins.
  • Their previous encounter gave a 0-1 away win for Watford.
  • Both teams have scored in four of their last five fixtures.
  • Only three of their last ten clashes have ended in a draw.

Nottingham Forest vs Watford Prediction

Only one of Watford’s recent five championship games had failed to produce more than 2 goals in ninety minutes. Besides, the Hornets have scored 19 goals in their 14 attempts in the campaign.

On the contrary, the host has slotted in only 9 goals so far this season in the same period. Since Forest has averaged 1.2 goals in conceding, we can expect the clash to see at least a couple of goals by full-time.

Hence, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably serve the purpose from the goals area to yield decent returns in the encounter.

Nottingham is on a three-game losing streak, and it will be hard for Chris Hughton to pull back his team from that trend. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game, but they have won only twice within the last ten home matches.

Despite visiting on a four-game winless streak in their away fixtures, the Hornets have drawn three of those in their schedule. So, the double chance favoring Watford will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash.

Nottingham Forest vs Watford Betting tips

  • Over 1.5 goals @ 1.40 (2/5).
